⚬ Description ⚬

This is an archival print of the original collage. Fits standard 11” x 14” frame.
The original piece was cut and pasted by hand from collection of used and vintage books.  

This collage is a response to both historical and contemporary injustices. It embraced African cultural heritage with the use of Black Panther, a Marvel character. In the Black Panther movie, T'Challa fell off the cliff and lost his ritual combat to keep his throne. The flower/herb saved his life and brought him back. Having Black Panther hanging off the flower in this collage symbolizes "the flower saved him as if he didn't fall off the cliff". The turtle at the bottom symbolizes the water under the cliff. This collage was made to capture one's resilience and perseverance through all obstacles and to  give voices to those previously silenced.
